Another Russian MMA event has descended into chaos after two fighters came to blows during a heated face-off.

Umar Tesiev clashed with Sergey Kiselev at an event to promote the second season of the Hardcore Fighting Championship.

The video, which you can watch below, shows the pair squaring up at an event to promote their bare-knuckle fight.

Tesiev is pushed by Kiselev, who then lands a heavy punch on his opponent’s head – with the event host seemingly happy to allow them to fight.

Tesiev drops to the floor and attempts to take his opponent’s leg before the pair are eventually separated by security.

It is the second face-off for the Russian promotion to end in a mass brawl in recent weeks.

Last month Alexander Yanshin drop-kicked his opponent Tamerlan Temirov after the pair came to blows.

In the remarkable viral video, which you can watch below, Temirov initially attempts to swing a punch at his opponent’s head before the pair trade kicks.

They are then separated, and the situation appears to cool down before Yanshin sprints across to room to drop-kick his opponent out of his chair.

A mass brawl ensues with the two men, who are eventually separated for a second time by masked security.

Yanshin is set to make his professional debut when the pair meet, with the fight date still to be announced, while Temirov is winless as a pro having lost his debut last month.
